The Chicago Conservation Corps (C3) recruits, trains, and supports a network of volunteers who work together to improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods through sustainability service projects.
If you have an interest in sustainability issues and wish to make a difference in your neighborhood, get involved in one of C3’s programs.
Chicago Conservation Corps Leaders
Leaders participate in 20+ hours of training classes that equip them with a broad understanding of urban environmental challenges and opportunities. Local experts teach these classes, covering environmental principles and skills in five subject areas: water, energy, green space, waste & community organizing.
Making a difference
Following the classes, Leaders turn their learning into action by developing and leading sustainability service projects in their communities with support from C3 partners and staff. After the project is complete, the Leader is recognized at an annual Leader Graduation Celebration and is eligible to complete further Leader projects.
